CD Release Concert & Listening Party with special guest William McMillan Band
Well, this new year has started off on the up-n-up. My daughter has recently turned 4weeks old and now is eating every bit of formula at frequent times of the day. We trying to keep up…LOL!
Now the times has come where everyone has started on their “New Year’s Resolutions” and many of theses resolutions are pretty much attainable…. Some aren’t, smh.
For me? I’m really trying to recuperate from such a busy holiday season and prep for this next phase of my life. There are so many new goals and challenges to face this year, but it’s gonna require “ReCharging” and “ReFocusing.” One never realizes how much weight they may carry until they take a moment to slow down and breathe then reflect.
I took a moment the other day and thought about the things I faced last year and asked myself, how did I keep my sanity? LOL, it’s amazing to make it “over-the-hump” and turn around and look back to see how high the hump was, smh… Now, one must realize that through all these past experiences you get ever stronger and wiser. The key now is to use it and move forward with even more focus and determination to succeed.
There is a difficulty though with taking or finding time to “ReCharge” and “ReFocus.” At any point in time, there’s so much going on which causes one to be “on guard” and never able to just relax. It is important to train yourself to unwind and detach from stressful environments.
My goal now in this earlier part of this new year is to “ReCharge” and “ReFocus.” I believe that doing that will allow me to better assess how I am to approach accomplishing these new goals and challenges. I look forward to disconnect and shutdown so I can reconnect and be able to move forward in 2014.
Life to me is all about “progression”…
My last post was all about turning another year older and being thankful for all the experiences I’ve encountered throughout the years prior to turning another year older.
Now here we go…
On December 10th, 2013 at approximately 3:35pm, God allowed me to witness the birth of my daughter, Vashti-Gracia Murphy Saint-Jean.
She is the joy of me and my wife’s life and now she’s almost 3weeks old, I can truly say that she has me wrapped around her finger, LOL!
I’ve been told time and time again that when you have a child so many things are going to change. Well, after 3weeks, I can say that things are changing and I’m ok with it. I realize that becoming a father is truly a calling and I appreciate my father more and more than ever… In a few days, I slowly approach the 2-year anniversary of my father’s passing away. It’s a tough thing to except, but I realize that with every death comes a birth…
Now I have to carry the same principles I inherited from my dad. He was a hard-worker… a man of great integrity and principle… He was a disciplinary not with just beatings, but with wise sayings… As I reflect on that, there were many times I thought my dad would beat me, but instead he’d look at me with that stern look and say… “I told you so…” After him saying that, always made me wish he’d just beat me, LOL!!!!!
Well, I’m enjoying being a daddy now… I’m looking forward to the journey. My little princess “Gracie” has been a joy to me and I love her sooooo much. My wife is such a wonderful mother and I’m looking forward to raising her with all the love and care that’s humanly possible!
